Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Joy Behar, Rich Lowry, Armstrong Williams, and more.

Election Denial

“Mrs. Clinton did win the popular vote. I continue to believe that you won. I don’t care what they say.” —"The View" co-host Joy Behar

The BIG Lies

“Wages are actually going up. … Median household wealth has grown by 37% since the pandemic, meaning people are better off — 37% better off.” —President Joe Biden (“Real wages are down by 3.2% since Biden took office and middle-class households have lost, on average, more than $33,000 in real wealth in the past year alone.” —RNC)

“If folks wanna push for a two state, go for it. But guess what? … Netanyahu’s current government is not supporting that. He’s literally said it to us over and over again: He doesn’t wanna coexist with Palestinians.” —Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)

Friendly Fire

“I am embarrassed for those Democrats who voted to censure their own colleague.” —Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA)

Non Sequitur

“I remember being on the ground during the Ferguson uprising. And I remember not knowing what to do with tear gas. … And I remember one day a delegation of folks from Palestine showed up and taught us what to do. … But if I just traveled a mile away, there was no tear gas. … And it was just like people going on with their day. Well that’s what’s happening right now.” —Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO)

For the Record

“The correct impulse in reaction to October 7 is to ‘never forget.’ The opponents of the kidnapped posters, less than a month after the enormity and before the toll and consequences of the attack are fully known, insist to the contrary, ‘Please, don’t remind us.’” —Rich Lowry

Veep Thoughts

“I got some words! I got the vocabulary, and my pronunciation is perfect! Ha ha ha ha.” —Vice President Kamala Harris


“In one of the more astonishing statistics from Tuesday night, a whopping 24% of self-described ‘white evangelical or born-again Christians' supported Ohio’s Issue 1, which not only puts the Buckeyes on par with California’s abortion extremism but gives the green light to minor transgender surgery — without parental consent. We’re expecting voters to act with moral clarity when the church won’t even speak to it.” —Suzanne Bowdey

“Advocates of same-sex marriage suffered a string of 32 losses at the ballot box before succeeding for the first time, in the bluest of states, in 2012. We disagreed with their objective, and both sides are more entrenched on the abortion issue, but their success serves as a reminder that a string of defeats at the ballot box is no reason to believe a cause is lost.” —National Review

“Those who are pro-life need to do a better job of portraying the other side as the real radicals. They mostly oppose any restrictions on abortion.” —Cal Thomas

Political Futures

“To chart a path back to the presidency, Trump must … work to become a different person, one who seeks unity rather than division. … To truly become presidential, Trump must rise above the urge for revenge and name-calling. The United States deserves leaders who can prioritize the greater good over personal vendettas, and Trump needs to rise above and be the type of leader his detractors don’t think he’s capable of being.” —Armstrong Williams

“The thing the Democrat Party and its allies face now is the fact that for tens of millions of Americans life was unmistakably better when Donald Trump was president.” —Brit Hume

And Last…

“There are only one or two things going on here. Either you’re not qualified to manage a Costco food court, or you believe in open borders. And I think it’s the latter.” —Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas
